The Las Vegas Raiders will have a training camp at their facility in Henderson, Nevada. Before coming to Las Vegas, the Raiders had their training camp in Napa, California. The team's former training camp in Oakland, California was demolished following the 2017 season to make way for a new stadium for the Oakland Athletics.
In addition to their training camp, the Raiders also have a practice field located within walking distance of their headquarters they call the "Warrior Field". The field is open to the public and can be reached by driving up North Valley View Road from I-15.
There are several reasons why people should visit the Raider training camp. First of all, it's free. There is no charge to get into the training camp grounds nor to watch any of the practices.
The second reason to go to training camp is to see some of the top coaches in the NFL in action. Head coach Jon Gruden and his staff will be doing everything they can during these camp sessions to bring in talent that will help them win games this year.
The last reason to go to training camp is to meet other fans who love the Raiders as much as you do. You'll feel right at home with them during these camp sessions since they're all fans of the Raiders too.
On Saturday, July 28, 2018, in Napa, California, Oakland Raiders supporters watch players and coaches practice on the field at Memorial Stadium during the 2018 Training Camp. The team is working out in Napa to avoid any incidents similar to those that occurred in Charlottesville when white nationalists gathered for a protest in Virginia. About 200 people showed up to watch the team work out, which was almost all Raiders fans.
The team's training camp is held each year in a different city. They first held camp in 1963 in Oakland before moving it to Irvine for the next three years. In 1966, they returned to Oakland where they have stayed since. The Raiders usually start camp around late July or early August and end it around mid-June. This year's training camp will last from Friday, July 27, through Thursday, August 2.
Raiders players and coaches live in various areas of Oakland during camp. Most live in the nearby suburbs but several have moved back into Oakland since the team's return in 2001. Head coach Jon Gruden lives in Mill Valley with his family. General manager Mike Mayock and assistant coaches Steve Spagnuolo (defense), Ken Norton Jr. (defensive line), Paul Guenther (offensive line), Joe Barry (quarterbacks) and Clancy Pendergast (strength and conditioning) also live in Oakland.
Performance Center for Intermountain Healthcare— On Wednesday, the Las Vegas Raiders will hold their 2021 NFL training camp at the Intermountain Healthcare Performance Center. The camp will run from July 25 through August 9.

Raiders' owner Mark Davis announced in April that the team would be moving its training camp from California to Nevada. This will be the first time the team has held training camp outside of the Oakland-San Francisco Bay Area since 2007.
In 2020, the Raiders will play their home games at University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) because Oracle Arena in Oakland is not suitable for training camps due to its proximity to home games. The UNLV stadium is also less than two hours away from the Mexican border - providing an ideal environment for practicing security measures during a global pandemic.
Training camps are important sources of information for coaches who want to learn more about their upcoming opponents. Hitting balls against other objects gives players an opportunity to improve their skills in practice settings where there are no game situations involved. This is why training camps are essential for any professional football team.
